    1. Join my Discord here (Note access is now closed - DM me for an invite)

      I'm curious how this experiment turned out since it's been a while. Invite please (if you feel it's worked).

    1. Beyond its Slack-like functionality, Discord has functionality like a social graph, seeing what games your friends are playing, voice chat, etc. These have been misunderstood by the market. They aren’t random small features. They are the backbone of a central nervous system. Active users of Discord have it on all the time, even when they are not playing games. It’s a passive way to have presence with your friends. And when your friends start playing games it makes it easy to with one click go join them in the game. Bringing your actual social graph across all games. Finally, voice chat makes it possible to talk with your friends across all games, even when you are playing the game. Like when working in a google doc, having to switch out of your game to message is a negative experience. Instead Discord adds functionality to your games even while you are focused solely on them. We will see more companies understand and begin to work on this area.

      Discord, unlike Slack, is the central nervous system (or meta-layer) for the gaming market. You can see what games your friends are playing and join them in real time. You can talk with them while playing a different game.
